Re: Acorn Art Thread

Hey pixel great pics!! One change I have planned for ART is to allow using more colours for cycling and less for the picture itself, so for the swimmer pic we could reserve 3 colours for the drawn / visible areas being blue, cyan and black, and 13 colours reserved for cycling which would allow for m...

Re: High Score Challenge S13 - R6 - Scramble

For people with shift key issues, what OS and beebem version are you on as I have never heard of this issue before? I do try to make my games compatible with beebem, but it is a bit of a pain due to its 6845 emulation, although for me it makes up for it by being so easy to hack. I do prefer beebEm ...

Re: High Score Challenge S13 - R6 - Scramble

Made it twice around, astounding beeb game and so smooth!

I do get the sound bug at the end of the game on both b-em and beebEm.

Have been playing on b-em as it handles my keyprefs better and doesn't auto drop the bombs.

Re: High Score Challenge S13 - R6 - Scramble

Great game and awesome version Tricky! My only issue is playing in beeb-em I get a weird key bug if I use Shift I can't move up or down until I move left or right first so I try avoid using shift as it seems to auto fire bombs every time I move anyway but that is not very accurate... might try b-em ...

This score doesn't help my standing but it's probably the best i'll post, does anyone have a solid method for getting back on the trampoline after jumping past the electrified tiles bit?

Re: Acorn Art Thread

The fountain also looks great on a real Beeb and a CRT monitor, btw. But yes, JSBeeb displays the pictures well too: see the gallery that SimonSideburns put together after he had downloaded some of the early GIFs in this thread and somehow -- how? -- converted them all to MODE2 format. :shock: =D> ...

Re: High Score Challenge S13 - R5 - Professor McBrolly

Wow great effort for pushing through those tough levels, with that as inspiration I had another attempt and made it though a couple of previously very difficult ones. I'm finding the electrified tiles the most challenging, there's no logic with how far back you get kicked when picking up a jar ](*,)...

Re: High Score Challenge S13 - R5 - Professor McBrolly

Oh dear, thought it might be like vindaloo, but it's a cheap imitation and not a very good one at that. The collision detection is horrible and the movement is punishing, the sound is ok but not enough to redeem the gameplay. Starting screen appears to be random which is good as I couldn't get past ...

Yes I agree with you Richard....I am not sure if I still have all the bbc files to all the pictures ( lost in time ) but point taken this would be the best way.....but if you save a mode 2 picture out from a BBC I wonder the best of way of loading that on top of a 16 bit bmp...I'll have to experime...
